Flow measurement technology impresses the jury twice
Endress+Hauser is the recipient of the German Innovation Award for two innovations. The company received the Gold Award for the Promass Q and also impressed the jury with the Proline 300/500 device family, which was recognized with the Winner Award in the connectivity category.
This year was the first time that the German Innovation Award recognized products that set themselves apart from currently available solutions through their added value.
“With the innovative Promass Q flowmeter, Endress+Hauser has established a new benchmark in precision when it comes to measuring the volume, density and temperature of liquid media. After all, precise measurements increase product quality and drive down costs,” said Andrej Kupetz, Head of the German Design Council and Chairman of the German Innovation Award jury.
The competition resulted in a second award for the measurement technology specialist, with the Proline 300/500 family of instruments, which was recognized with the Winner Award in the connectivity category.
Promass Q: the specialist for demanding applications
The Promass Q, which offers superior measurement accuracy even in harsh environments, is designed especially for the oil and & gas as well as the food & beverage industries. With this flowmeter, Endress+Hauser guarantees unrivalled accuracy when measuring mass flow, volume flow and density, even in operating environments and process conditions that fluctuate heavily. Endress+Hauser has also developed a new function that enables the Promass Q to precisely measure fluids with entrained gases.
Proline 300/500: innovative connectivity for IIoT solutions
Equipped with numerous functions and features, the new Proline 300/500 instrumentscan perform universal flow measurements for any process control application. These instruments measure the flow in pipes with superior accuracy while providing operators with a wealth of important diagnostic and process data.
Thanks to optimized connectivity, intelligent self-monitoring with Heartbeat Technology and a cloud-based app, users can exactly identify the maintenance requirements of assents optimize maintenance planning and minimize plant shut-downs.
